Telescopic CraneTop-level safety

Flexible control systems

The safety systems from WIKA Mobile Control are best suited for mobile telescopic cranes with telescopically adjustable and luffing main booms which are used in rough environments on construction sites. The crane stability is ensured via extendable outriggers and counter weights. 

During the lifting process, the maximum load is calculated by means of the operating mode. The position of the load is defined and displayed to the crane operator. According to the standard EN 13000, hazards such as the crane tipping over, the rope breaking due to overloads are prevented. In doing so, the condition of the crane is monitored by sensors for force measurementlength measurementangle measurement and pressure measurement.
